Gawler Tips 28/02/2024


Race 7 No. 2 NOT A SINGLE BID – ($3.50)

Murray Bridge trainer Grant Young produced NOT A SINGLE BID to land a last-stride win at Strathalbyn recently. Alana Livesey settled just off the speed on Not A Single Bid while being caught a little deep from their outside gate. She found momentum up the hill and seemed destined to fight out the minor with Rising Legend as Starlight Rebel gave them the slip on straightening. Not A Single Doubt pinged the ears back and really lengthened to close the gap deep inside the furlong. Livesey managed to get her horses’ head down where it counted and justify the late market support. That win was enough to convince us to get on Not A Single Bid when he won at Balaklava two starts ago. Back in grade slightly following a narrow second over this track and trip last start and can make it three wins in five starts.



Race 2 No. 4 EXALTED KATE ($6.50)

Strathalbyn trainer Jyi Lukey brings his mare EXALTED KATE to Gawler Racecourse on Wednesday with the benefit of two trials under her belt. Exalted Kate hadn’t been asked of much in either trial under apprentice rider Polly Brewster. Brewster allowed her mount to find her feet early on both occasions before working home late. Exalted Kate got over the early leader to take out the first trial at Oakbank before running up behind the quinella on the Parks track. We backed her first-up over this track and trip last start where Exalted Kate was perhaps beaten by the claim on the other horse. Lukey will not be outdone, and so this week Exalted Kate will have the benefit of a three-kilo claim under Caitlin Tootell.



Race 6 No. 5 THINK TANK ($7.50)

The speed should be on in the sixth race at Gawler Racecourse on Wednesday. This should help Jacob Opperman find a good rhythm aboard THINK TANK who steps to 1500m second-up. Trainer Matthew Seyers sent Think Tank out over 1300m on the Parks track first-up a week and a half ago. Think Tank got back with the speed just middling out in front. Jacob attempted to pick his way through closer to the fence on the horse who clearly peaked inside the 100m. The run was just a pass mark for Think Tank who will appreciate the drop in grade. Produced a win while overcoming difficulties in his maiden over 1400m at Gifford Hill when racing second-up last campaign.
